Given that Siberian tigers mass up to three hundred fifty kilos and
bears up to four hundred kilos, I suspect both of them would have
difficulty finding any prey that wasn't smaller than they are. <g>

As John McLoughlin said, this is the wolverine, a creature famous not
only for its fighting ability but also for tremendous endurance and
extreme intelligence.

Those were wildebeest, a.k.a. gnu.  Wildebeest are routine prey for
lions, hyenas, and African hunting dogs.  They can injure and even kill
attackers with their hooves, but one wildebeest against half a dozen
lions is a foregone conclusion, and that's even more true against a
dozen hyenas or twenty hunting dogs.
